Wonderful friendly staff. We arrived a bit early but we were allowed to check in anyway. Everywhere is clean and fresh and well kept, feels like it could have been refurbed just yesterday. Room was big, lovely bathroom, comfortable bed. Heating is a bit fierce but easily controlled. Drinks in the bar not too expensive, you always expect to pay... More

came up from London on short notice (i.e., booked that morning). Proprietor was warm, professional, knowledgeable about the area. Checked us in, hauled up our bags, later waited on us in the restaurant (decent meal of soup-of-the-day, one steak and one rack of lamb, bottle of wine). He was back on duty again in the morning and had great advice... More

I really enjoyed the food here, was fresh and nice varied menu. The wine list is good and really well priced which is nice! Chef is always quote accommodating with mixing it up a bit too food wise!

The chef must have had a night off,as the chicken and steaks we had were overcooked,not hot,and generally the quality of the food was poor for an excellent hotel like this - disappointing.

We'd booked for one night and as it was Sunday and in view of reviews. we decided to book to dine at the hotel too. On arrival we were asked if we could eat earlier as the chef was not feeling well. With hindsight, we would have been better to decide to eat elsewhere. As a place to stay, the... More

Stopped at High Tor Hotel for our wedding anniversary, and thoroughly enjoyed our stop. Rooms are comfortable, bathroom great, staff all friendly and helpful. It is also a great setting, as you can walk in to both Matlock and Matlock Bath for an evening out (Matlock the better bet unless you are a keen fish and chip fan). Would definitely... More
